Sydney based four-piece Sooners have teamed up with American producer Kramer (Low, Galaxie 500, Bridezilla, Leader Cheetah) to create an inspiring double single to be released on 7” vinyl.

The release features the band's totem tune "Horses Run Out" and their ambient musical excursion "Once in a While." Through a process of experimentation and structured improvisation the band has developed these compositions both in the studio and through live performance.

“We feel that both songs have evolved over time to become crowd favourites. We think they really capture a moment for the band.”

The individual members of Sooners draw from a vast range of genres, being compared to acts including The National, The Dirty Three and Mogwai. However it is these conflicting influences that has created a sense of Yin and Yang in the band's interesting and unique music.

Track Name: Horses Run Out
Let your horses run out
So those wild might stray
Through the streets of our town,
And be gone by the morn.
Hoist your sails up high,
Guide your ship through the storm.
Beat and broke in the night,
In to calm with the dawn.

Sister that is very well,
But listen here as I explain:
If all my ships were beat and broke,
Before the even left the bay.
If all my horses fell to sickness,
Left out in the pouring rain,
What my dear is there to do,
But stay inside and sit and pray?

Build your tower to the sky,
Lay the bricks by your hand,
Watch it fall to the wind,
And in the rubble rejoice.

Let your demons go free,
For they're better astray -
They can say what they like,
And be bottled away.

Sister, know that I've tried,
That I've fought them away,
But they only return,
I can't keep them at bay.
